SuperMAX Electrometer

The premier two-channel, reference-grade electrometer on the market.

SuperMAX™ Electrometer part of complete solution for: Stereotactic Absolute Dosimetry CyberKnife

SuperMAX™ Electrometer Overview

Two Independent Measurement Channels

  • Independent control over range, bias voltage, and applied system factor.
  • Both channels feature extensive range (0.001 pA to 500.0 nA, 0.001 pC to 999.9 µC) for use in a variety of applications, including ratio measurements.

Built-In Detector Library

  • Eliminates the need for a PC or to apply system factor and temperature/pressure corrections.
  • Store over 100 detectors and calibrations.
  • Apply individual factors to one or both measurement channels.

Easy-to-Use Interface

  • Large, color display with built-in touchscreen.
  • On-screen keypad and pull down menus allows for easy access to settings and detector library.

Store Data Collection

  • Measurements are stored from all data collection.
  • Set automatic repeat measurements.

Exradin W1 Scintillator Integration

Two dedicated modes in the SuperMAX allow for seamless calculations using the Exradin W1 Scintillator.
